The World Baseball Classic has its All-Tournament team, and not surprisingly players from the top teams dominated the list.

That included the Israeli team, the surprise of the tournament, whose own Josh Zeid was one of just three pitchers to earn All-Tournament team honors.

Zeid was nearly unhittable in ten innings of work over his team's six games, allowing just five hits and striking out ten.

Several familiar faces also made the squad, among them Major League Baseball stars Carlos Correa, Yadier Molina and Carlos Beltran.

USA pitcher Marcus Stroman, who earlier in the evening led his team to a shocking win over previously undefeated Puerto Rico, 8-0, to earn the USA their first WBC championship, was named tournament MVP.
